Or, buying a full size truck to tow a 4500 lb trailer, when other alternatives (that are more comfortable, safer, and more economical daily drivers) are available is like:

Buying a mountain bike with 6 inches of suspension travel to ride the paved bike path.
Using a sledgehammer to hang a picture on the wall.
Getting a Viking stove to boil ramen noodles.

Making it sound like using a Highlander in this instance is unsafe or is a cheap way out (considering a new Highlander costs as much as a full-size truck, if not more) doesn't seem to be a valid argument.
